At the World Finals (Worlds) 2022, the teams of the two regions LPL and LCK are of course the most appreciated names. Even before the tournament, many opinions have assessed that the World Championship 2022 will be a great battle between these two regions with the world’s top League of Legends. Among them, Gen.G Esports or Royal Never Give Up, JD Gaming, TOP Esports are the most appreciated names.
However, there have been many surprises in the last group stage. Specifically, all 4 representatives of LPL faced many difficulties. Although rated higher than the LCK representatives, EDward Gaming lost both matches against T1. Meanwhile, RNG lost the top position after 2 consecutive defeats to Gen.G, and JDG almost “hated” if player 369 did not shine. TES was even more “disastrous” when having to return home only after the Group Stage.
Although the LCK representatives are rated weaker, they are performing very well. T1 won both times against the defending champion of Worlds 2021 (EDG). 3rd seed of the LCK – DWG KIA also made it difficult for JDG. LCK champion – Gen.G also defeated RNG to take the top spot. And the final representative DRX also contributed to making TES the first LPL team to be eliminated at Worlds 2022.
But not so that all LCK teams are appreciated. Recently, Doinb – “LPL spokesman” has made new statements around the teams at Worlds 2022. Accordingly, LNG Esports Mid Lane thinks that DK is the weakest representative of the LCK at this tournament. Doinb was even more shocking when he commented: “If DK meets T1, Faker and his teammates can also beat DK”.
According to information from the community, this judgment may come from the training results of the teams that Doinb knows. Moreover, at Worlds 2022, the 3rd seeded team of the LCK region was not really impressive. If ShowMaker or Canyon have partially regained their form, then Nuguri is the problem. In his matches, Nuguri has not shown his best form, typically in the tie-break match against JDG. Despite carrying a champion with as much damage as Irelia, Nuguri did not contribute anything and DK was defeated.
DK has reached the Quarterfinals and their opponent will be Gen.G – the defending champion of the LCK Summer 2022. This is an opponent that is too familiar with DK and has defeated ShowMaker and his teammates. few times. However, there is no reason not to believe that DK still has a chance to win. Surely both teams will have to give their best efforts because with just one mistake, a whole season could end immediately.
